Waste not Want not...

Happy Sunday,

A simple card today made from the fall away ( I hate the word waste as I don't believe we create waste as crafters!)  from the Starflowers I used to create tomorrows card.  

I simply carefully placed the dies on a piece of hammered white foundation card and cut these so that the flowers tumble down the page.  I backed trains with Cobalt foundation card and added cosmic white PVA dimensional glue in the dots to give ,more definition.








I mounted this onto a piece of offset embossed card ( again form making a different project) and added layers of white and cobalt.

Finally a stamped tag cut with the stitched tags dies of course cut from snaps with some oddments of thin satin ribbon.

Enjoy...
